Babita overcomes her disability and rewrites her future
Babita used to study at a government school in a village called Vasdev. SSISM met her during a career counseling session of 12th standard students.
Babita is Polio affected since childhood. She has a big family. Her father is a laborer, and her mother is a housewife. She has 5 siblings; two elder brothers who work as masons, one younger sister Mamta, who is a graduate but unemployed, and one brother who is a truck driver. Babita and her younger sister Mamta are the only two graduates amongst her siblings. Mamta was not allowed to work due to familial pressures.
During counseling, she told the organization that she wants to do something in life. She wants to help her family. Her poor financial condition and being differently abled makes it impossible for her to get a higher education.
SSISM impressed with her determination gave her admission to the college. They assured her that her education and transportation would be taken care of. She joined SSISM after her 12th and gained admission in BA. She successfully completed her graduation with the support of the college.
After graduation, Babita began working as a teacher in a school near her village. She, however, wanted to do something different and approached her college mentors.
She had high potential and wanted to do something different in life. She was asked to come to Bangalore with SSISM for a training program. This program could prepare her for a chance to appear for interviews.
Going to Bangalore or any other city for a girl in rural India is not at all encouraged. On top of it, if she was differently abled. Despite the resistance from her family, she was firm about her decision of going to Bangalore.
Her hard work and sincerity paid off well. With all her efforts, she got placed within 50 days of training.
Babita is now working in an award-winning company Vindhya Info in Bangalore.
Occasional support and a few words of encouragement were all that was required for this miracle to happen.
Babita can now speak English, and the confidence visible in her is amazing. She is not only self-reliant but supporting her family as well. She is also preparing for her Master's Program.
There are many more like Babita who need such support to rewrite their own destiny.

About The Program
What the beneficiary gets
Sant Singaji Institute of Science & Management provides education to needy students who live in remote villages of MP.
Donations to this program will contribute to a fund that will cover the college tuition for the students from remote villages.
Sant Singaji Institute of Science & Management is in Sandalpur - about 4-5 hours away from Bhopal and Indore. The college offers many undergraduate and postgraduate courses. They also have a well-equipped library and their own software development wing.
The students belong to underprivileged backgrounds and live in remote villages. These villages are sometimes very far from the institute and beyond forest areas. They walk through forests just to reach the bus stop and then have to travel over 50 km by bus to reach college.
At Sant Singaji, a student pursuing any of the science or management courses receives aid with college tuition, basic computer training, spoken English, and exam registration. The college also provides free transport to the students.
When you donate to this program, you help in giving rural children a chance at education.
